Modified Flag Book with Painted Covers

with Rosemary Rae
Tuesdays: January 23 & 30; 6:30–9pm CT

Create an original book showcasing your painting, collage, and book making techniques. This virtual workshop is perfect for anyone excited to explore a new twist on the flag book. Originally created by Hedi Kyle, the traditional flag book has panels that cross each other when the book opens and closes. In this modified version, all panels sit in alignment. When the book is open, your original, hand-decorated tags are on display. 

Prior experience helpful: Ability to score, fold, and cut paper and board. An understanding of grain direction and how to paint and glue book board. Some collage and painting experience is helpful but not required.

For individuals to whom these scholarships do not apply, register at the Adult rate and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make scholarships available.
